United Way of Long Island invites all Long Islanders to salute the men and women who fight for our freedom, and their loved ones who encourage their journey, by wearing a LIVE UNITED tee shirt to work on Flag Day, Tuesday, June 14. In exchange for a $10 contribution which includes a tee shirt, or a $15 contribution for a Limited Edition tee shirt, you can show that your company supports Long Island’s military families by participating in OPERATION LIVE UNITED.

We need to raise $100,000 that day to help provide emergency financial assistance, employment/job training, and mental health counseling to returning military personnel. Proceeds from Operation Live United will benefit United Way’s Military Family Assistance Project. In partnership with local agencies, United Way is supporting programs that provide military personnel who have served in Iraq or Afghanistan with emergency financial aid, counseling/case management help and job training/employment assistance.

The LIVE UNITED shirt signifies a cohesive effort to better our community by reaching out a hand to those who fight for our freedom. Wear your shirt on June 14 to show your support of United Way of Long Island and military families in need. The uniformity of this movement across Long Island will send a message of people coming together, living united, to make a difference and inspire hope.
